Has soccer gotten ahead of themselves? Matt Thompson believes so…
The FFA Cup for 2018 has been run and won.
Adelaide United 2 defeated Sydney FC 1 last night at Hindmarsh Stadium.
Craig Goodwin scored twice for United and gave them their 2nd FFA Cup title after winning the inaugural championship in 2014.
Speaking on Fox Sports after the game former coach of Adelaide and Sydney FC John Kosmina said “This has got to be your flagship domestic competition out of all the football codes. This is getting into AFL Grand Final territory.”
Macquarie Sports Breakfast show host Matt Thompson responded this morning with his own thoughts.
“John Kosmina please!
To compare it to the AFL Grand Final, it just shows that they have an inferiority complex in the soccer world and everybody wants to be like the AFL.
The AFL dominates sports in this country and for good reason. I’m sorry. That’s just a ludicrous argument.
I just think soccer fans really need to get a grip and realize that you’ve got your place in Australian sport and that’s where it sits.”
100,022 people attended the MCG for the 2018 Grand Final which saw West Coast defeat Collingwood by 5 points in an all time classic. As opposed to last night’s FFA Cup crowd of 14,448.
